The trend in cowhorses is going the other way. More cowhorses are being bred to be 15-15.3 so that they have the size and speed to better handle cattle. Cutting horses and reining horses are going to stay on the smaller side because it is easier for them to get down and move fast. Also reining horses look faster when they spin when they are shorter head to tail than a horse that is longer.
There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill
